Ernest Tubb performs “That Wild And Wicked Look In Your Eye”

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music.In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson's "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his late-1950s version. Another well-known Tubb hit was "Waltz Across Texas" (1965) (written by his nephew Quanah Talmadge Tubb, known professionally as Billy Talmadge), which became one of his most requested songs and is often used in dance halls throughout Texas during waltz lessons. Tubb recorded duets with the then up-and-coming Loretta Lynn in the early 1960s, including their hit "Sweet Thang". Tubb is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Ernest Tubb - That Wild and Wicked Look Lyrics



Now I saw you while was passing by

All cuddled up with another guy                       

But baby it sure didn't bother me


You thought you could make me blue

But little gal the jokes on you                                    

Cause I didn't trust you from the start you see                                                 

You've got that wild and wicked look right in your eye


Even when you pucker up and cry

Then you say to me you're sorry now

You'll make it all up somehow                                       

But you've got that wicked look right in your eye



Now babe I know you'll never change     

You're not the type to rearrange


To settle down and quit telling me lies

Know this is where that I came in       

And I'm checking out this is the end  

But before I go I'm gonna tell you one more time
